Your Guide to Glam Decor & Home Furnishings

Glam decor is a style of interior design that fuses elegance, sophistication, and a love for all things ornate with functionality and a modern appearance. It's not a style for the faint of heart, as it incorporates elements that are just over-the-top enough to create a stunning look without looking gaudy. It's a careful balance to strike, but once you know the rules of the style, you can bring a red carpet feel into your home.

Mor Furniture for Less offers the best prices in town while providing plenty of glam decor furniture pieces and home accents. Here, you'll find everything from glamorous bedroom sets to beautiful living room furniture, decorations and wall art, and more to complete the look.

The Basics of Glam Decor

You've heard of traditional style, contemporary style, and even Art Deco style homes, but the glam decor style is often overlooked. Or, you may be incorporating elements of the design theme into your home without realizing it but are now ready to ramp it up and go for the look of full-on royalty.

There are a few basics of glam decor to understand before getting started. First, glam style is always ornate. While modern style calls for straight lines, a minimalist look, and simplicity, glam is anything but that.

It's full of dramatic lighting, bold accents, metallic colors, sparkle, shine, and patterns. The style calls for close attention to even the most minor details. When guests step into your home, they'll immediately feel like they're in the lap of luxury.

Many think glam means expensive, but this doesn't have to be the case. With a few simple upgrades, you can up the "wow" factor in your space and create a room full of only the finest pieces.

5 Ways to Incorporate Glam Decor In Your Home

While there are many ways to doll up your space, there are several tips to consider when going for the glam style. We're here to break it down for you, so you know what to look for on your next home shopping adventure.

Here are five ways you can tastefully incorporate glam decor into your home.

1. Focus On Dramatic Color Schemes

Glam style is all about making a statement and pleasing the eye. One of the best ways to do this is by selecting a dramatic color scheme. A few of the most popular color trends include deep emerald greens, navy blues, and deep purples as the primary hues. Don't be afraid to take the dive and choose a dramatic paint color to instantly glam up any room in your house.

Alternately, if you're not ready for such a drastic change and want to keep it neutral, there are more subtle colors that can still complement the style. Try a warm beige, a crisp white, or a cool gray. If you go with a more neutral palette, the glam will really come into play with your accents, art, and hardware.

2. Choose Dramatic Lighting

One of the first things that comes to mind when thinking of a glamorous space is often the lighting. Whether you choose an ornate chandelier, sophisticated wall scones, or detailed table lamps, select lighting that will make a statement.

You can choose up-lighting for a feel that's very movie-premier-esque or accent spotlighting to showcase specific pieces of art and decor you have in the room. Select lighting options with dimmer switches if you want to up the dramatic feel a little bit. Then, you can turn down the brightness if you're going for a more intimate and cozy feel or ramp it up for activities like game night.

3. Select Metallic Tones and Hardware

When it comes to glam decor, metallic tones and hardware are in. While modern or contemporary styles call for a seamless appearance, free of exposed hardware, glam is precisely the opposite. Exposed, sophisticated hardware is what to go for here.

Look for pieces of furniture with gold or silver rivets, picture frames that glisten in the sun, and even accents such as pillows or tabletop decor that look shiny and new. Now is an excellent time to add a decorative mirror, which elevates any space and helps increase the appearance of your dramatic lighting.

Another option that goes well with the metallic tones and hardware on furniture is to go for glass. Glass top coffee tables, end tables, and coffee tables with prominent gold or silver trim are a modern way to bring in a glamorous style.

4. Pick a Statement Piece

Choose what you really want to highlight within your space and select a statement piece to accompany the area. Your statement piece may be a glam bedroom set, or it may be a new media console. Or, perhaps you want the wall art in your room to speak for itself.

Choosing one grand statement piece is the best way to incorporate glam decor without having furniture that clashes or creates a look that appears too cluttered. Of course, with glam style, everything in the room will be a little bit extravagant. However, choosing pieces that complement each other and call attention to your main statement piece is essential.

5. Glitz Up Your Decor

Glitzing up the smaller accents and details in your space is another excellent way to incorporate glam decor style. Look at pieces such as end tables, accent chairs, throw pillows and blankets, photo frames, and any art that you may have on display.

The glam style features curved lines and soft, rounded edges. Instead of those straight, rectangular picture frames, opt for a metallic silver round frame. Or, add throw pillows that have a little sparkle to your couch.

Pick wall art that features the finer things in life. Think vintage-inspired pieces that showcase overflowing grapevines and bottles of wine or classic depictions of movie characters. Alternately, you can select abstract pieces that include colors from your palette with fine details. Go for metallic frames or wooden frames with carefully carved details.
